Bridget Hale Sharing Project raises $6,500
One hundred thirty-six runners took part in the third annual Bridget Hale Sharing Project at the Stewartville High School track on Saturday, April 7.
Dawn Miller, a health teacher at Stewartville Middle School who organized the event, said the numbers were down by about 100 from 2017.
"I'm guessing the frigid, cold weather was one of the reasons," Miller said in an e-mail.
Even with the fewer numbers, the participants raised more than $6,500, which will be used to help students who need glasses, rides to medical appointments, clothes, shoes, school supplies and more, Miller said.
Participants took part in either a 10K, 5K or one-mile run.
"They enjoy the course, which is scenic through Bear Cave Park," Miller said.
The event is held in honor of Hale, a former reading teacher in the Stewartville School District who died unexpectedly on Aug. 23, 2016.
"Bridget was a good friend of mine," Miller said. "She was such a caring teacher who always had supplies for those who didn't. She had a strong passion for reading, and provided a welcoming environment for that reading to take place."
Miller says she misses Hale every day, especially the smiles and hugs Hale shared with others.
"We can keep her memory alive by sharing her passion for students' needs," Miller said.
Next year's Bridget Hale Sharing Project will include a book drive to provide more reading material for Stewartville's students, Miller said.
"I'd like people to remember Bridget's passion for reading and for helping students," she said. "She had a kind heart."
